Ex On The Beach: Gaz Beadle has revealed he and his ex-girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg are now friends following their break up.

Gary and Lillie had dated for nearly two years, but the pair shocked fans when they announced they had split in November last year. At first the pair had both insisted their relationship ended amicably, but things became tense between the pair when Gaz rekindled things with his former Geordie Shore co-star Charlotte Crosby.

Fans will get to see Gary and Lillie discuss their break up when reunited on Ex On The Beach's new series, and it sounds like their emotional heart-to-heart has put the pair back on good terms.

Speaking to Daily Star, Gaz revealed: "When I first spoke to Lillie it did get quite emotional. I had a big cry. But after it, I felt so much better. It was closure letting it all out. We're friends now."

Gaz has previously said that his decision to head back on to Ex On The Beach was because of Lillie. He explained that he had wanted to see her again to clear the air, as the ex-couple never really had their chance when they initially split.

In a video shared by MTV, Gary had said: "My reason for going back on Ex On The Beach is probably to sort things out with Lillie. We didn't really have a closure and we didn't really have a chance to speak.

"It will be nice to see her again, actually get closure and then move on to the next chapter in our lives."

Fans have since been given a first look at Ex On The Beach's fifth series and Gaz is seen breaking down in tears while speaking with Lillie. He tells her: "You made me realise that there is more to life than doing what I was just doing."

Following his split with Lillie, Gary had picked up his on/off romance with Charlotte and they both appeared to take swipes at Lillie over social media and in the press.

While Gaz branded Lillie "embarrassing" on Twitter after she signed to a celebrity management agency, Charlotte had accused Lillie of being 'fame-hungry.'

Initially Lillie didn't respond, but she later hit back at 'fame-hungry' claims after Instagram users continued to comment as such on her posts.

She recently opened up about her break up with Gary too, revealing that he had ended their relationship while he was at the airport, before boarding a plane to Australia.

Lillie said: "No-one really knew what happened with me and Gary. It was a very intense relationship and very personal and private for me... We broke up because Gary was given a choice between Geordie Shore and me. He couldn't have carried on the show with a long-term girlfriend.

"The break up did come as a big shock... It was the first time I was properly in love. He was a lovely boyfriend... He chose his career over me and I get that."

Gary went on to become romantically linked to Charlotte until May this year. Lillie had been dating Stephen Bear, but they have now split, after Bear publicly moved on with Chloe Khan in the CBB house. He had declared he wanted to be single again, and told his housemates that he no longer thinks Lillie is 'the one' for him.

She has since told fans there is "no going back" for her and Bear.
